Top Ten Lousy Remakes

#01 - The Manchurian Candidate (2004). Good Actors In A Shit Film.

#02 - Cape Fear (1991) - The Ending Just Misses The Whole Point.

#03 - Assault On Precinct 13 (2005) Why? What Was The Point?

#04 - King Kong (2005) - Overblown, Boring. Not A Patch On The 1976 Version That It's Clearly Based On.
#05 - Th Fog (2005) - Just Really, Really Dull.

Oh the joy, getting in there first.

1) The Manchurian Candidate (piss poor)
2) Cape Fear (alright, but not as good as the original).
3)Assault On Precinct 13 (not a patch on the original.)
4)King Kong (bloated, stupid, the original is iconic).
5)The Hills Have Eyes (this current wave of horror remakes has to stop - the original is a work of genius, the remake misses all the wit).

I quite fancied Jessica Lange in that second Kong remake though?
